1. Luke Kennard

Luke Kennard is a player who, when acquired at last year's trade deadline, was viewed as a tremendous acquisition for the Grizzlies considering their lowly long-range success rate prior to his arrival.

Of course, while this season they find themselves even worse off in this department than they were in 2022-23, and, in turn, could use for his career 43.5 percent shooting clip from deep, taking into account that they also rank dead last in both points per game and offensive rating as a whole, it's evident that they need way more than just a spot-up shooter, regardless of how trusty, within their arsenal.

Because of this, if his skillset and lofty $17.4 million price tag can interest an opposing team to part ways with one or more well-balanced offensive contributors, Memphis should absolutely jump at the opportunity to do so.

Luckily for them, he's already someone who has drawn attention on the trade market, according to HoopsHype's Michael Scotto.

Amid an injury ravaged campaign to this point, Kennard is still producing at a rather enviable rate, posting averages of 8.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.2 assists on 39.4 percent shooting from deep on 5.5 attempts per game.

Be it in a trade involving a top-tier title threat looking to beef up their perimeter shooting abilities or with him merely being used as a salary-matcher, with the way things are going for the Grizzlies there seems to be a rather realistic chance that the veteran sniper is sent packing before this year's deadline and, with his proven track record, there are likely to be plenty of teams inquiring about his availability over the next several weeks.
